My first guests in the new studio brought it on in style. It started with Lynne Mizera making this fantabulous 3D new studio card complete with an extensive array of fussy-cut items on the walls including photos of me, and in-progress works on the table. Call me gob-smacked!
When you realize the whole card is about 8 inches in width, 4 inches high and 2 inches deep your eyes will cross and head roll when you imagine doing all those teeny, tiny, itsy, bitsy cuts! Accompanying a lovely little art journal (more play time coming up), it is a stupendous gift.
She brought it when she joined three others here for a play date. While we normally have a theme for our playtimes, this particular morning was a free-for-all.
Maureen worked on this fabulous collage - Here's to Hue! indeed. Could it get any more colour-full?!
and then started another one in her dog series. She was on a roll, and so intent that I'm not sure she even heard the conversation around her.
Deni was tearing into the Gelli plate, making prints and turning them into cards.
While still in progress, it's likely to get done today or tomorrow, delivery will happen soon, and I can do a post for you on the envelope contents.
I did have 20 minutes or so at the end of the morning, where I was able to toss all thought aside and play with the Gelli plate.
As always, I enjoy the look of the newly-painted stencils, too.
I'd love to hear about your week - catch me up in the comments below, and feel free to add a link!
